Online graffiti trackers Zone-H bring us this story of Turkish cracker “iskorpitx” who defaced 21,549 sites at once by placing a page on each with an image of the Turkish Flag. The article says that a secondary page was added (so it wasn’t a DNS trick or similar), though it doesn’t say how many actual hosts this affected. It wasn’t a domain parking service either, a cursory glance (at the time of this post) shows that many of the sites are up with real pages (and still defaced). Here is the list of actual defaced sites.
